The fourth season of the Esports Championship Series will kick off on Friday.

ECS Season 4 will be held both in Europe and North America, with both divisions hosting ten teams. The first part of the season, kicking off tomorrow at 19:00 with the match between FaZe and Heroic, will be online during which teams will play against all the other teams in their division twice in best-of-one matches.

The top four teams from each division will advance to the ECS Season 4 playoffs while the ninth and tenth placed squads will have to play promotion matches in order to participate in Season 5. The squads that finish 5-8th will automatically secure their spot in ECS Season 5.

SK were the victors in the ECS Season 3 Finals

Heroic, who finished first in the Development League and beat Dignitas in one of the Season 4 promotion matches, will join ECS Season 4 Europe. Virtus.pro also won their promotion match, beating Space Soldiers and retaining their slot in Esports Championship Series.

Agree, FaZe insanely strong atm. We'll see if they'll last though, I hope they do.
2017-10-05 19:06
tbh everyone except niko and rain where all washed up players before they came to faze. Rain was still developing and NiKo was just brought in to be a god which he is so
